walktoanarcade: GDubDub: With no helpful pictures of what a racist tweet may look like.

Save your time, it's a pic of the prez in an unflattering moment made to make him look like a racist joke.

Hint: It includes a badly photoshopped banana.

Similar to this?

/That ought to get the thread rolling

The tweet was 5 months old. Even if your account was hacked 5 months ago, you didn't delete the tweet.

frepnog: are we really surprised that a nation comprised of white people almost exclusively has racist people?

Because there's no racism to be found in non-white populations, right?

Gordon Bennett: Nice farking try. You can't defend a statement then turn around and deny having said it at all when that doesn't work.

Are you not familiar with politicians at all?

ciberido: I'm GUESSING he's saying that what I called "focus on the action, not the individual" is akin to the "love the sinner, hate the sin" policy some Christians have (or claim to have) regarding homosexuality

I still prefer my gay porn theory...

"Love the sinner, hate the sin" is such bullshiat... It's like saying you love black people; you just hate when they act all black! Or, you love people with Down Syndrome; you just hate when they act all retarded! Or, you love disabled people; you just hate when they act all crippled in their silly wheelchairs and such! So, you just want them to hide their true natures and act like something completely different? I don't think what you have there is "love" by any sane definition of the term...

/Ok, how many groups have I offended in this post?

Just remember to focus on the action, not the individual.

You know. Like Putin does with teh gheys.

Either I have no idea what you are trying to say or that's the dumbest thing I've read in a Fark thread today.  Possibly both, but I'm hoping it's just the former.

The third lie's the charm!

So, which was it? Free speech? My American friend sent it to me? My account was hacked? I love watching the statement that she clearly didn't write, in two parts, tweeted well after she basically took ownership of it by defending it.

Of course, that's the best part of the SoCheap 2014 Olympics - watching all of the unplanned events, like the 100-meter stray dog biathlon and the basic room furniture scavenger hunt. This event, the 3-person PR team Twitter relay, isn't one of my favorites, but it does beat the trash pile slopestyle event by a mile.

insertdip: From the comments,

And the GOP and it's braindead voters lining up in 3, 2, 1 ... to recruit this bimbo to run as Senator in some miserable Third World Southern red state

Sounds like something straight out of the politics tab

I saw somewhere on the internet that a can of fermented fish was responsible.
